"The Real Me" as written by and Bergdorf/mauriello/osmundson/tabatabaee/....
I know a girl who welcomes the world
I think though the world is spoiled
And she holds on to me
She holds my head up so that I can breathe
And I've found that when I'm on the ground
She's the only one still sticking around
Only she knows the real me
And I know that she won't let me down
And I get mine

No way I could ever leave today
Cause she listens to the dumb things that I say
And I seem to get high
With just one smile as she walks on by
And I found that when I'm on the ground
She is the only one sticking around
Only she knows the real me
And I know that she won't let me down

[Chorus]
There's only one girl in this world
Who understands the real me
There's nothing superficial, artificial
You get just what you see(End)

I know a girl who takes up my world
Takes all of me and every breath that I hold
We meet and she makes me feel free
With one look she knows just what I need
And I've found that she's got me bound
Cause she's the only one that my mind surrounds
Only she knows the real me
And I know that she won't let me down

[Chorus: x2]

I know a girl who wakes up my world
Brings in the warmth when I'm feeling cold
And she's got places to be
But she says that she would rather stay here with me
And I've found that when I'm on the ground
She's the only one sticking around
Only she knows the real me
And I know that she won't let me down

[Chorus: x2]

    General CommentThe lyrics are great... it's such a sweet and comforting song, but makes me sad because I wish my boyfriend knew that's what I would do or be for him if he would only let me. =/
